I am looking for a way to secure my body harness while I am climbing up my ladder stand. I have a good body harness that I hook up when I get to the top, but I want to have a way to use one while I am going up and down. Anyone have a sugestion on a way to do it that isn't a hassle??

Use a drop line and connect to it with a prusik knot.

Is it OK to use that same dropline after you get on stand? I helped a guy with a hang-on stand last weekend that came with a drop line and prussic setup. I would have thought that the smaller line used for the prussic would be kinda light to use to arrest a fall from the stand...

I just got a ladder stand and I am in the same boat as skywarrior. I really don't understand exactly what a drop line is or how it works and how to use the prusil knot on the the line. Please help.
Thanks
